The Microscopy Room (see a larger version)

Microscopy Room








This Microscopy Room has side benches for 15 Olympus microscopes, with the multi-head microscope in the centre.

The multi-head microscope capacity can also be lined to a video camera and a monitor, so that extra students can view the real time images.


The Seminar Room (see a larger version)                Seminar Room








There is also a dedicated lecture area, which can be separated from the microscopy area by a sound-proofing sliding panel.

This area also contains a microscope and video camera, which can be used for large numbers of delegates to view real-time cytological images on two ceiling-mounted monitors and a projection screen.

Facilities include a lectern housing a computer with internet access, video and DVD player and connection for laptops.

There is also a facility to use traditional 35mm slides, all controlled via an AMX controller.

The Seminar Room, when separated, comfortably accommodates 25 people, but can take maximum of 30.
